Cheesy Black Bean Enchiladas

with Long Green Pepper, Cilantro, Pico de Gallo & Lime Crema

When it comes to Mexican food, burritos typically get all the glory. In our humble opinion, enchiladas are a total unsung dinner hero. They’re technically easier-to-assemble burritos smothered in a delicious sauce (but they’re really so much more than that). These are filled with a combo of flavorful stewed and mashed black beans, topped with tangy red enchilada sauce and Mexican cheese, then baked until bubbly and melty. Hot out the oven, the ‘ladas are topped with pico de gallo and cooling lime crema. The only thing missing? A cold, tasty beverage!

Baking Dish



• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 475 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Dice tomato. Roughly chop cilantro. Halve, peel, and finely dice onion. Quarter lime. Core, deseed, and dice green pepper. Drain beans over a small bowl, reserving liquid.

Make Pico & Crema

• In a second small bowl, combine tomato, cilantro, 2 TBSP onion, and a squeeze of lime juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper. • In a third small bowl, combine sour cream with a squeeze of lime juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper. Add water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 4 TBSP onion.

Make Filling

• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add green pepper; cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. Add remaining onion; cook until just softened, 2-3 minutes. • Add Southwest Spice, half the beans, and 2 TBSP reserved bean liquid (you’ll use more of each in the next step). Cook, stirring, until fragrant and warmed through, 2-3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat.

Mash Beans

• Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add remaining beans; cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. Add 3 TBSP remaining bean liquid (you may have some left over). Simmer until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. • Lower heat, then stir in 1 TBSP butter and salt (we used ½ tsp kosher salt). • Turn off heat; mash with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth. Season with pepper. • 4 SERVINGS: Use 1/3 cup remaining bean liquid, 2 TBSP butter, and 1 tsp kosher salt.

Assemble & Make Sauce

• Spread tortillas with mashed beans. Place a small amount of filling on one half of each tortilla. Roll up tortillas, starting with filled sides, and place enchiladas seam sides down in an 8-by-11-inch baking dish or large ovenproof pan. • In a bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine tomato paste, Tex-Mex paste, and ½ cup water. • 4 SERVINGS: Use a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or two smaller ones. Use ¾ cup water.

Finish & Serve

• Pour sauce over enchiladas to thoroughly coat. Top with Mexican cheese. • Bake on top rack until sauce is bubbly and cheese melts, 5-7 minutes. • Top enchiladas with lime crema and pico de gallo. Serve directly from baking dish with remaining lime wedges on the side.
